Marietta Pritchard: A ‘Yes’ vote for the Jones library

Thursday, September 23, 2021

The signs have begun sprouting in my neighborhood — Vote YES for the library.

I will wholeheartedly do that. As someone who has borrowed books for myself, my children and grandchildren, and periodically volunteered in the English as a second language program’s dark and airless tutoring rooms, I can verify that the library is in deep need of renovation and expansion.

A rabbit warren of often unusable spaces, unfriendly and even unsafe for people with disabilities, it is a community jewel worth saving for the next few generations. Please vote “Yes” for the library.
